Step Back in Time...

The WPRM has over 100 pieces of rolling stock alone in our collection for our visitors to enjoy.  Among these are an example of the Mighty "Centennial", a Union Pacific DDA40X locomotive, the largest diesel locomotive ever built at over 98 feet long!  Our Western Pacific 2001 ushered in an entirely new era of Diesel Locomotive technology as it was the first turbocharged locomotive in America.  The Western Pacific 805-A is the "Belle" of our fleet, as it was built to pull the famous "California Zephyr".  Speaking of the Zephyr, the museum has many cars and artifacts of "The most talked about train in America".  We also have one of the largest collections of cabooses in the country, and we invite you to ride a few of them to experience for yourself what it's like to be a freight Conductor!  Enjoy Railroading in its "native habitat!


WP FRRS Logo The Feather River Rail Society is home to one of the largest fleets of preserved, historic locomotives in North America.  Locomotives ranging in size from 44 ton switching locomotives to a 200 ton example of the largest diesel locomotive ever built, the Western Pacific Railroad Museum has over 40 locomotives in their collection.  That's more than most short line railroads!

We have a little something for everyone's interests.  Small switching locomotives, streamlined passenger and freight locomotives, and large road locomotives can be found at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum.  Some are operational, some are display pieces, and many are under restoration to operating condition.  And of course, we have a steam locomotive, WP #165, currently under restoration.
